    You'll always have things discovered by people tearing things apart, question is why does Apple make it so we can find out?

    I would think to give something before Christmas with an update, perhaps even releasing a pair of Bluetooth Headphones too.

    Time will tell!

    A2DP doesn't require a chip at all, it's just a software protocol, Apple could have easily added it to any firmware since the orignial iPhone launched, they just chose not to.

    I don't get why this is such an awesome feature. I heard it still doesn't sound that good.

    I can really see Apple introducing A2DP when the new iPods are introduced this fall, together with an Apple made A2DP headset :)

    Don't forget the 32GB iPhone and the 2 or so million people complaining about it being released so soon after they put the 3G out (which is why it'll probably cost $400).

    Yeah, there was a review in one of the UK mac magazines a few months ago of bluetooth speakers/headphones and they all sounded rubbish. They concluded that BT stereo wasn't yet a mature or useful technology for most users. Still, why let that stop anyone complaining, eh?

    Not to mention it will suck more power in an already power-constrained unit.

    The BT chip in the last iPhone supported the full stack of BT standards. It's always been a software issue. The hardware has been there.
